    Native: English.

    Fluently: Arabic

    About enough French of Spanish to understand why they sound the way they do and differentiate verbs/nouns/adjectives and appreciate sentence structures, but not much more.

    Honestly, I can claim fluency solely in my native language and English. Or at least I can make myself more or less understood in them.

    I've studied Russian, German, Spanish and Latin more or less for several years but to even think that I'm fluent in them would be fooling myself. I picked up Finnish, never studied it officially, but it's mostly passive (meaning I can understand it but I'm not very fluent in speaking it due to lack of practice).

    I am kind of fluent in italian, english, german. Of course I can understand spanish perfectly, and also get the gist of most conversations in portoguese, but I can't speak it. Italian is my mother tongue.

    Can speak French well enough to get by just fine visiting somewhere, but would need immersion to get more comfortable. Don't understand Quebecoise (different phrases, pronounciations, slang) which makes it difficult to follow a fast conversation accurately.

    Learned some German years ago, but no opportunity to practice much with native speakers. Now French word pops to mind first.

    Cree - several words and phrases.

    English (Canadian) - native language.

    Newfie English - can speak and understand it!

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    English: Fluent

    Japanese: Mildly fluent, but on more of an academic level than a practical one (I know how to speak differently to the President of my company and my close friends and the proper etiquette in giving and receiving gifts, for instance, but don't know much in the way of slang and common contractions as I haven't lived in a specific area yet). Still working on it.

    Spanish: Some, in the way of short conversations, a good accent, and the ability to curse quite fluently.

    Cursing: German, Italian, Spanish, English, American-English, Scottish-English, South African English, and Japanese. Some Dutch and French.
